Nine years ago my husband and I celebrated our fiftieth birthdays
with a trip to Ireland.
Some of you have already seen my Ireland photos.
However, I decided that some of the finest examples of architecture
in my photo collection were from Ireland.
Therefore, I am showing these photos again.
A humongous home that became a Catholic girls school and is now open to visitors.
The next three are of a church in Dublin.
This next photo shows the charming stone homes
that are an integral part of Ireland's architecture.
They may not qualify as stunning to some,
but the attention to detail in these humble abodes
are stunning to me.
It is late and my mind is foggy, so the specific names of these buildings and places
are shut away in a back room in my brain.
I apologize for not giving more detail.
Next up are photos from my hometown.
The town is on the National Historic Register as a Victorian Village.
I have shown this house before also.
It is across from the home where I grew up.
I considered this my dream home.
I introduced it on my blog here.
I was thrilled when it went on the real estate market.
I posted reasons why it was my dream house here
and the reasons why it wouldn't work for us, here.
Here is another home we looked at.
But it was up for auction without a clear title.
Our lawyer advised us to leave it alone.
These two photos are of our Gay 90s Museum.
It is a stunning example of Victorian architecture
--at least for us small town folks!
